This has already been covered on every golf blog in the nation, probably. But, being out of town this weekend, my blogging time was quite limited.

Golfing legend Seve Ballestoros, 51, has been diagnosed with a brain tumor. According to the BBC, Ballesteros will undergo a biopsy tomorrow to determine a course of treatment.

Ballesteros owned European golf in the 1980s, and he was one of the most prominent golfers in the States as well. He won five majors in a span of nine years: the ’79, ’84, and ’88 British Open, and the ’80 and ’83 Masters.

Best wishes to Seve and his family as they forge through this battle.
